One of the most important parts of wedding planning is finding the perfect location for your special day. While it may be tempting to choose one of the more common venues, why not switch it up and consider getting married on a yacht? Yacht weddings are romantic, unique and will create beautiful memories that will last forever.
Here is a simple guide to help you decide if a yacht wedding is right for you.
About Yacht Celebrations
Yachts are ideal for celebrating all kinds of occasions, including holidays, birthdays, and anniversaries. You can even hold a celebration of life service on a yacht. Whatever the occasion, a yacht is an ideal venue for your special day.
If you are considering this venue for your wedding, here are some pros and cons to consider.
Pro: Blank Canvas
Getting married on a boat means that you have a blank canvas to work with. Other venues, like a vineyard or church, come with built-in decor, but a yacht can be decorated in any style you like. Within hours the open deck can be transformed into virtually anything you need it to be, a dining space, a dance floor or a cocktail reception.
Con: Limited Space
For boat weddings, you do have to consider the amount of space available. Compared to more common venues, the average-sized yacht is fairly small and cannot accommodate very many guests. If you are planning to have a large wedding and need extra space for many guests, a yacht wedding may not be right for you.
Having your wedding and wedding reception on a boat is ideal because it is all-inclusive. You won’t have to worry about hiring a photographer, wedding planner, caterer and many of the other things on the typical wedding planning checklist. Many of the services you would need to hire are already included, making a yacht wedding a convenient option.
Con: Punctuality Is a Must
Every wedding has its stragglers but that is not possible when you are having a wedding on a boat. Your wedding party and guests will need to arrive on time to avoid being left behind. This can be a problem for some and is something to consider when choosing a yacht wedding.
Perhaps one of the best reasons to have a wedding on a yacht is that you are mobile and can have a change of scenery at will. You can follow a pre-set route to provide you and your guests with the most beautiful scenery possible.
Not only does this make for a unique wedding, but it also is great for your wedding photos because you can have several picturesque backdrops to remember your special day.
